After watching the incredible landing of STS-131 last month from Space Park in Titusville, Florida I decided it was certainly worth a blog about the city park dedicated to man’s race into space.
I could go into the history and development of the park throughout the years, but I will leave that to these fine websites to check out.
I will however show you some images of the park that I captured during the two visits I had there last month.
This sign welcomes you to this easy to find park full of history.
The history of Space Flight awaits you by walking around the park looking at all the informational panels on the art work.
Here is the dock area early in the morning before the landing. Merritt Island is just visable on the horizon after the morning fog has lifted. This is were hundreds of people gather to watch liftoffs and landings.
While waiting for STS-131 to land, we were happily surprised with the sighting of a mother Manatee and her baby which stayed around the dock area for about an hour in Space Park. A surprise treat for all of the people waiting for the landing.
